The Colored Busts by Christina A. West

So colorful!

I love the weird defaced busts by the American sculptor Christina A. West.

Each piece have a particular colorful intervention that can be revealed only if the sculpture is “ruined”. The surgical cuts combined with a bright colors selection is simply stunning.

 

 

Torben Giehler – Abstract Nature

Colorful!

The paintings by the German artist Torben Giehler are the perfect one to bring you a positive mood every time you look at them.

Sometimes in his abstract paintings you can recognize a mountain landscape, but his personal way to see nature is stunning.

Bright and shiny colors are the key players of each of his works, and the way he combines them together is so intriguing and inspiring.

Purple Crafts – MAMMBA Accessories

So colorful!

I love the handmade products by MAMMBA Accessories. The creator of this brand is Ilze, a proud mum of two kids and an interior and crochet designer.

Ilze started to crochet when she was expecting her daughter, and since then she never stopped. In her Etsy shop you can find colorful knitted/crocheted hats, scarfs, mittens, headbands and stunning jewels, all realized with love, attention and using beautiful color combinations.

Daisy Patton – Forgetting Is So Long

I want it all!

I discovered the wonderful paintings by the american artist Daisy Patton not so long ago, and I totally fell in love with her works. This particular series really caught my eye, is called “Forgetting Is So Long” and the mixed media technique used is super intriguing.

Daisy collected found family photos, then she printed the pictures on a bigger surface and painted on them. The result is totally mind blowing, I really love the mix and match between a classic vintage portrait and her colors splash interventions.

This is what Daisy wanted to express with this art project:

By mixing painting with photography, I lengthen Roland Barthes’ “moment of death” (the photograph) into some semblance of purgatory. Not alive but not quite dead, each person’s newly imagined and altered portrait straddles the lines between memory, identity, and death. They are monuments to the forgotten.

Below a little selection of my favorite one, enjoy!
